When I first saw the Parisian Beauty Stamp Set, the Eiffel Tower stamp was what made me want to purchase it. My husband & I, and our youngest daughter, took a trip to Europe this past December. On the agenda was a few days in Paris and we had booked tickets to go up to the top of the Eiffel Tower.
I could have been waving from one of the upper platforms, but unfortunately, there was a huge transportation strike, so our train tickets from Switzerland were cancelled, so we looked for alternate ways to get there. Then the workers at the Eiffel Tower decided to strike in support of the other workers. So with most of Paris shut down due to the strike, we ended up cancelling that portion of the trip. One day, I’ll get there, but in the meantime, this card will have to do:
The fun thing about this card is that the rectangle piece on the front is actually a piece that was cut from the front of the card. You cut it off and then turn it sideways and attach it to the front
Then you put the same size piece on the inside of the card. It stays hidden until you open the card! How easy is that?
I also love the sentiment – “Follow your heart; it will take you to incredible places”.
I actually used two stamp sets – Parisian Beauty and Forever Blossoms to make this card along with the coordinating paper, Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper. The Parisian Beauty Stamp Set and the Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper are both retiring on June 2nd. They are still available as part of the Last Chance Products, but only while supplies last! only while supplies last!) And the paper is ON SALE too!
It’s hard to see in the picture, but this paper has Champagne Foil accents – the Eiffel Tower in the paper I used plus on the flower blossoms on the other papers. It’s a beautiful effect. The Forever Blossoms Stamp Set is carrying over into the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. If you would like to make this card, this is what you will need:
- Parisian Beauty Stamp Set
- Forever Blossoms Stamp Set
- Cherry Cobbler Cardstock – Cut 4 1/4” x 11”. Score at 5 1/2” . Then open the card and cut 2 1/2” off the left side. (This is the piece that you will turn sideways for the front
- Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper – Cut one piece 5 1/4” x 4” and cut a coordinating piece 2 3/4” x 4”
- Champagne Foil Sheet – Cut two pieces 2 3/8” x 4 1/8”
- Whisper White Cardstock – Cut two pieces 2 1/4” x 4”
- Ink: Cherry Cobbler
- Rhinestone Basic Jewels
- Snail or Multipurpose Liquid Glue
- Optional – Parisian Blossoms Designer Series Paper cut 2 1/4” x 6 (for envelope flap)
And since there was no need to decorate the inside of my card, since that is already part of the design of the card, I decorated my envelope flap instead.
